Renaming or Reordering Tabs
The command is removed from the custom group but is still available on the list on the left
so that you can add it later to some other group or tab.
Renaming or Reordering Tabs
You can change the entire look of the Ribbon by renaming and/or reordering its tabs.
Any tab can be renamed, even the built-in ones. Just right-click it and choose Rename, or
click the Rename button and then type the new name. PowerPoint does not check whether
each name is unique, so you can name them all the same thing if you like. (That wouldn’t
be very useful, though.)
To move a tab or group, right-click it and then click Move Up or Move Down, or use the
Move Up or Move Down button.
Resetting Customizations
It’s easy to get carried away with customizing PowerPoint and end up with an interface you
barely recognize. If this happens, reset the Ribbon to its original state and start over.
To reset only one tab, do the following:
1. If the PowerPoint Options dialog box is not already open, right-click any but-
ton on the Ribbon and choose Customize Ribbon.
2. Click the Reset button. A menu opens.
3. Click Reset Only Selected Ribbon Tab.
4. Click OK to close the dialog box, or leave it open for further editing.
To reset all customization, including any custom shortcut keys and the Quick Access
Toolbar, do the following:
1. If the PowerPoint Options dialog box is not already open, right-click any but-
ton on the Ribbon and choose Customize Ribbon.
2. Click the Reset button. A menu opens.
3. Click Reset All Customizations.
4. Click OK to close the dialog box, or leave it open for further editing.
Importing and Exporting Customization Settings
After you get the Ribbon and other program options just the way you like them, what hap-
pens if you need to switch to a different computer? The good news is you don’t have to
recustomize everything; you can export your customization settings to a fi le. Then you can
transfer that fi le to the other PC and import the customization settings there.
